Setting intentions with your crystals can help you manifest many things in your life; from attracting prosperity and good luck, or a basic realising during the waning gibbous phase, can help clear a troubled mind or to rid an area, person or yourself of negative energy. Once you’ve programmed a stone, it will continue to emit the energy you charge it with, until it is cleared once again.
When preparing for setting intentions, you’ll want to take some time and think about what your intention is for your crystal or crystals, particularly for the specific moon phase and crystal you are using. What are you trying to accomplish? What is the desired outcome? Ensure your stone has been cleansed and ready for its task, cleanse the area you will be working in too.
When you are ready to begin setting your intentions, be sure you are free from distractions. To start, write your intention down. Take the crystal in your hands, visualize what you hope to manifest and speak it aloud to the universe. Feel the emotions you will feel when your desired outcome is reached, and visualize it.
The moon profoundly influences all aspects of our lives. Because of this, it is important to choose the appropriate time for setting intentions in your crystals. Different phases of the moon are used for different intentions.
Good stone to work with during a Dark Moon: Labradorite or Aquamarine
Good stone to work with during a Waxing Crescent Moon: Rose Quartz
Good stone to work with during a First Quarter Moon: Carnelian
Good stone to work with during a Waxing Gibbous Moon: Tigers Eye
The effects of the full moon lasts for three days – the day before, the day of, and the day after the calendar date of the full moon.
Good stone to work with during a Full Moon: Smoky Quartz
After the 3rd night of the full moon, we enter the moon’s waning period, which lasts for about 14 days. This phaseis a good time for creative release
Good stone to work with during a Waning Gibbous Moon: Black Moonstone
Good stone to work with during a Last Quarter Moon: Obsidian or Clear Quartz
Good stone to work with during a Waning Crescent Moon: Black Tourmaline or Bloodstone
A Blue Moon occurs when the full moon appears twice within the same calendar month. Many consider the Blue Moon to be a goal moon where you set specific goals for yourself.
Good stone to work with during a Blue Moon: Celestite or Blue Quartz
A Black Moon occurs when there are two dark cycles of the moon in any given calendar month. Many consider the second dark moon especially powerful, with the specific intentions mentioned above.
Good stone to work with during a Blue Moon: Sugalite
Programming is putting intention into a crystal’s energy for the purpose you are using it for.
This will charge and program your crystals for your intention or desired work. You can place your stone(s) into a pouch and carry it with you, get a macrame or metal cage type necklace holder to wear it, or you can just have the stones nearby you while working on your set goal.
For longer range intentions, keeping your crystal(s) close (wearing them/carrying them with you) will help to remind you of your goal/intention as you work towards the desired outcome. This will help you maintain your focus.
I wanted to share some simple crystals with you for times you may be feeling in a slump, tired for no reason, or lacking motivation. Phases we all go through. And then I realized why I was compelled to do a quick blog post about this. We just moved into Saturn Retrograde 2019. It started on April 29th and won’t end till September 18th. Now I’m in no way an expert on astrology, I’ve only just recently started dabbling into it. But I do know that people who were born during a Saturn retrograde will be really affected during this time.
*”Natal Saturn retrograde could show as sadness, depression, loneliness, tiredness or lack of motivation. Disrespect of parents and authority figures may be holding you back. Whatever is stunting your productiveness is what Saturn retrograde focuses on. This could well have been an ongoing problem hindering success over many incarnations. Events or relationships will keep reinforcing the problem area this life, especially during Saturn retrograde phases, until you master it.”
So listen up Saturn retrograde babies and anyone else who’s feeling the effects during this next several months. Surround yourself with things that motivate and energize you.
Don’t want to exercise? Find a new playlist to inspire you!
Having trouble shaking off the grogginess in the morning? Try some a.m. yoga!
Writers block? Pick up your laptop and head outside for some new energy!
You get what I mean. Don’t let retrograde get you!
And pick up a few of these while you’re at it. They’re pretty, and they’re compact so they can go anywhere with you and they will give some much needed positive and motivational energy ! I don’t usually shop online for crystals and minerals (I like to feel their energy). **So find a little metaphysical shop in your neighborhood and go explore and see what “feels” right to you!
Clear Quartz is the go-to crystal for practically anything. The energy of Quartz amplifies your own vibrational energy and the energy of anything else nearby. It can also help you feel more at ease and less stressed out as well. Clear quartz resonates to your needs. It's a fabulous stone to fill with positive intention.
Ruby helps increase your energy levels by stimulating the energy of your circulatory system, increasing blood flow. Rubies carry an inextinguishable flame within that speaks towards passion and prosperity.
Amber is said to harness the energy of the sun. It also brings the user positive energy. Amber is a great stone for writers and writers block. Amber also assists with memory.
Amethyst provides protective energy around you when you're holding it or wearing it. Amethyst boosts hormone production, tunes the endocrine system and boosts metabolism. Place this crystal on your Third Eye chakra (in between your eyebrows in the center of your forehead), for a boost of energy and as a psychic amplifier.
Carnelian helps to boost stamina and can be very beneficial when it's worn on the body throughout the day providing you with consistent energy. This is a great motivator stone.
Seraphinite, is a stone of light energy, as in higher vibrational energy. This stone heightens the sense and amplifies any "gifts" the user has.
Fluorite can really help your focus. It's also useful for sharpening and narrowing your awareness within the environment you are in when using it.
Rose quartz is amazing for opening your heart up to a higher vibration of awareness, both for love of self and love extending outward to all of humanity.
Black Obsidian soaks up negative energy like a sponge. This can help lift you out of the fog so to speak. Allowing you to experience the positive energies as the negative ones filter out.
Ocean Jasper allows you to be lifted above yourself to connect to life all around you. A high vibrational stone, it also clears the negative energy that you may feel. Ocean Jasper is a stone that will help see you through storms in your life by supporting your way through.

** I highly recommend you only shop for crystals at shop that has an established business (been around a bit). Shopping for crystals at places like Home Goods you will often find fake crystals that were created as simple decoration, which is why they are sold in a store like Home Goods.
